Sound — 10
I play with a guitar tuned A, 5 notes below standard tuning, and it produces extreme bass tight lows. This is an most definitely a rock/metal even punk cab. It has absolutely perfect sound when running distortion or clean. It is not open back, so the mids on the amp have to be higher to compensate.

Overall Impression — 10
I got this Mesa cab hoping big, and dreams came true. The cleans can shimmer and bite no problem, and perfect response and tightness on the lows. Get this cab.

Reliability & Durability — 10
You can drop this thing out of the back of a truck moving 65 mph and it will still sound perfect. Not that I have, or wish to taint the absolutely stunning perfection in the looks of my Mesa cab, but still. It has slider slots for wheels on the bottom, so you can walk it around no problem, then take them off for the stage or studio.

I got this Mesa cab hoping big, and dreams came true. Wow. The cleans can shimmer and bite no problem, and perfect response and tightness on the lows. I play with a guitar tuned A, 5 notes below standard tuning, and it produces extreme bass tight lows. This is an most definitely a rock/metal even punk cab. It has absolutely perfect sound when running distortion or clean. It is not open back, so the mids on the amp have to be higher to compensate. On the back, there is an 8 ohm input, 2 4ohm inputs, and 1 output jack. The 4 ohm inputs can be used for biamped signals or just single 4 ohm signals. I'm in love with it, and Mesa is not overrated nor is it too good to be true.
